Government Selectives

The Social Science Department will offer four government selectives for 2020-2021: U.S. Govt: Constitutional Law, U.S. Govt: Crime, Law and the Constitution, U.S. Govt: Race, Gender and Power, and U.S. Govt: San Francisco Case Studies.  Each government selective will use a different lens to explore government and politics in the United States.  Seniors are required to take at least one of the four government selectives, but they are highly encouraged to enroll in as many government selectives that interest them.

Students must apply to take government selectives for honors. By taking honors, they commit to completing additional assignments (e.g. a college-level research paper) and participating in outside experiences (e.g. a city council meeting).
